still mug think morning, checking out the temperatures across the region from the weather watchers, everybody's pretty much mid upper 70s, even on the coast, pretty muggy right now at james' house in ocean city at 76 degrees, mostly cloudy skies. we go into delaware, seeing little bit more sunshine right now at the this house in newark, at 75 degrees, with mostly sunny conditions. and we go up little further to the north and west, up in berks county, where helen davis in mothermoten, 78, mostly cloudy skies, even though still warm, the breeze makes it feel fresh this morning. yes, we have the breeze going for thus morning. and areas in berks county right now, probably going to get in on the change and humidity already as the colds front starts to move n from west to east today see improving conditions. down at the shore, waking to up some clouds, few peaks of sunshine, so not the best start to a beach day here. live look in ocean city, at least we're dry, so some overcast skies for the next few hours, but once we hit the afternoon, the sunshine will
come out, ocean temperature water temp still 70s, lower 80s today, pretty good beach day for the second half of our sunday. rocking out the 90 agree days. yesterday we hit our 44th of the season. so may just be most amount of 09 agree days since 2010. where we had 55 days. so not going to reach that number, but still 44, that's well above the average of 23 foresees until 90 agree days. average high for today, 80. so still above that. a month from now we will be averaging upper 60s in november. up ear's, so, certainly signs of fall coming at us pretty quickly. as cooler air mass starts to build on in. we start to feel some that far change coming in later on this week. cool front still to the north and west. i mention berks county, poconos, probably starting to feel the change little bit right now. couple of showers possible in the poconos next hour or two. other than that, just some clouds, clearing out nicely western pennsylvania. a lot of sunshine coming at us later on today. dew points this tells the

>> time for the cbs-3 pet project, carol erickson, hi, who do we have here today? >> very appropriately named dog, rahel. this is tuck. you can see, he's very formally dress the at all times, in black, with a white chest, and this is a wonderful dog. he's a retriever mix. he's probably about six to eight months old. and he's an absolute love. i'm in love with this dog. we'll tell you more about him in just a s he's wonderful,
and kind of a dog that could probably end up being somebody's emotional support dog. he is wonderful. and being 9/11 as it is and so many dogs were so instrumental in the aftermath of that. so, you know, you really have to honor our dog friends, that have helped people so much. let me show you some dogs, though, that may help you, and your family, in your lives. and this is a wonderful dog. this is cameo. she is a six month old female pit mix. she previously whiffed with dogs, she is starting to shed though because she is in so much stress from being at the shelter, through no fault of her own. she loves kids. she is just a wonderful, wonderful dog. in fact, she was an emotional support dog. so you can see, that she really needs that emotional support now. here is another dog for us. butter bean, butter bean is a five year old. i love the markings. look at the two markings on the hit, five year old pit mix, previous owner hell on hard times, surround ends, sweet dog, crate trained, house trained, she knows to
sit and stay and come here. she has lived with a family of seniors, adults, children, dogs, cats, she is ready to go. she is playful, active, affectionate, so well behaved. she wonderful. and here is a lovely lovely cat. this is prince. six year old, gray and white domestic short haired returned to the shelter because the family could no longer care for his medical needs which includes diabetes, for this reason on special diet. he's also declawed in the front but he is a cat that's ready to go home. i want to talk about first of all let's talk about tux, tux is as you can see just wonderful dog, available for adoption at the pennsylvania spca. you will be giving for how people can get ahold of tux, he is a big dog, he is would like a yard to run around in, but wants to liver in the house with a family, little bit shy. but that's one of the reasons. >> and he loves a belly scratch. >> he'll be getting into that. and it is one of the things, you know,'s puppy, he needs training. talking about training. you know, with the search and
rescue dogs from 9/11, highly trained. you and your dog, may never be capable of that level of training. but, most dogs, in fact, basically dogs should have training. and that's because that's their language. that's their language, if somebody finds that dog, your dog, and they say sit, they'll go hum, this is a dog that gets it. it is one of the basic commands. sit, stay, come here, also, to me, if the dog is in a stressful situation, you train them to come to me. not in a angry way, because negative reinforcement isn't going to work. yelling and screaming and hitting doesn't work. if you yell at your kids and hit them when they get there, they're never going to come back. >> so maybe some positive reinforcement. >> like this, when the cameras were moving around this morning sitting here, like i said there is little popsie a little bit shy. i started giving little treat. all the sudden, hey cameras, start moving, i like there is this is is good for me. that's what i want to do. we have wonderful resource, and it is laura garber, ahead
of the spca, written wonderful things on line, linking them to our page, you can also find them, and probably be available about 9:00 this morning, you can also find them, under behavior on the pennsylvania spca site. things where you may be negatively reinforcing your pets, you don't even know it, but reinforcing bad behavior. don't even know you are doing it, think you are doing something right. also, some of the things that i like is the command drop it. your dog has something of yours that you want back. if you get into a wrestling match, you're going to lose. give them a treat. a high value treat. that's going to work absolutely beautifully. >> i find them so smart, so they're being trained even when you don't realize you're training them. >> rahel, you hit the nailon the head. exactly what it is, that's why whatever you're doing you're also training them, it could be bad. let me make sure i'm going through my notes here, so much more. never when you're training a dog put them on their back. that, you know there is want a belly rub that's one thing, putting them on their back that's going to create a ton
of problems. head to the website spca. com website, that's helpful, as well. >> if you want to adopt a pup or any other adorable pet, head to the erie avenue headquarters from noon to six on the weekends, noon to 8:00 during the week. >> so important to have your pets and you trained on how to do it in a way that everybody's going to enjoy it. >> absolutely, carol, good seeing you. hopefully we found tux a new home. so cute this morning. >> love this dog. and moving back next week with more information on what you should know with your pet. >> always looking forward to it, carol. thank you. that's it for "eyewitness news" at 7:00. here's what we have coming up for you at eight. miss america pageant is tonight in center city. hit the gym to show you how one contestant is getting ready to compete for the coveted crown. >> what was it like to live in a roman cast snell. >> meisha takes to you this castle on today's dream drive.
